Yesterday I had a full days with the boys and we all three exhausted. We had "school", dis art, had music, went to the library and then went to the garden and visited with my parents. We came home and cooked supper and Daddy was still not home from work. We went ahead and ate supper. While I am super glad he has gotten to work the last two days, he is leaving at 3:30am and last night it was 8pm before he made it home. By the way, he does NOT get paid by the hour. He gets a percentage of the haul.
I had given bathes and done the majority of the bedtime routines by the time he walked in. He had to shower before he came in contact with us because of the type of hazardous waste he had to haul. While he read the boys a book and did devotion I got a bath and then prepared the boys rooms for the night.
We got them in bed about 9pm and I crashed on the couch while John ate supper sitting beside me. As I caught up on my blog reading I came across this post (Waiting) by JMOM over at
Lots of Scotts. It made me think..... at 8pm I am exhausted! I need MY time! I get in the mind set that I am off duty when the boys go to bed. They are usually in the bed by 8pm, when they are not it interferes with me........how selfish is that!
Our heavenly Father thankfully does NOT have that mindset. He is with us at a ll times and hears ours pleas and cries at all times of the day and night. Don't get me wrong, if my boys wake up and need something or they are sick I take care of them and love being able to do so. I just need that time right after they go to bed to connect with hubby and veg out.
So today i am going to be more diligent in trying to have more patience and be a better Mommy to my boys. I love them so very much and they are growing up so quickly. I intend to cherish all of the moments there are little sprinkles of teetee that misses the potty, every little bit of food that I clean up and all of the moments in between when I hear......."I lubbbbb you Momma! So precious are the blessings that God has bestowed me with to raise as his!
I am so blessed! Thank you Lord for all of my blessings, especially my little miracle boys!
Blessings to you today!
